Managing Metalogix Diagnostic Manager

You can specify the options for the Management Console and Collection Service, including the Repository. You can also force  Metalogix Diagnostic Manager to collect data from servers and pages or even suspend data collection.

 

Temporarily Suspending Data Collection

You may want to temporarily stop collecting data from part of your SharePoint deployment. With  Metalogix Diagnostic Manager, you can choose to temporarily stop collecting data from any server, Web application, or monitored page.

Disabling Data Collection for a Server

If you disable data collection for a server, the Collection Service no longer retrieves information about the memory, CPU, or disk states on any server type. On Web front end (WFE) hosts, the Collection Service also stops retrieving information about Internet Information Server (IIS). Finally, the Collection service stops monitoring pages on disabled servers. If the disabled server is the only WFE you use to monitor the page, then no data is collected for the page. If you collect data about the page from another WFE and the other WFE is enabled, the Collection Service continues to monitor the page on the enabled WFE. If you monitor a page on all WFEs, the Collection Service excludes the disabled server when it monitors the page. In addition, the Collect Metrics Now option in the ribbon in the Server Dashboard view becomes disabled.

info

NOTE: When you disable data collection for a server, any historical data is retained in the Repository.  You can continue to use the Management Console to review any stored data about the server, but no new data is collected.
